Uber is rolling out two new training classes this week for its drivers.
The company says it will offer “Uber Unleashed” and “Uber Zero” to drivers at its New York City and San Francisco offices.
Both classes, for Uber drivers, will cover “the fundamentals of Uber” and will focus on driver-training fundamentals such as driving fundamentals, how to negotiate a fare, and how to handle emergencies.
The first Uber Unleashed class will begin on Thursday, January 13 at 1 p.m. in New York and San Jose.
The Uber Zero class will start at 5 p.s.m on Friday, January 14 in San Francisco.
“Uber’s goal is to help drivers improve their drivers skills in order to get more rides and to earn more money,” Uber said in a statement.
Uber is also rolling out a new training program for its Uber drivers that is being called “Uber Unstoppable,” which will offer drivers a “game-changing” training course on driving skills.
The training will start with a “hands-on” training in Los Angeles on Monday, January 19 at 7 p.ms.
The goal of the Uber Unstable course is to give drivers “the tools they need to be confident in their driving skills and the confidence to drive without fear of being caught in a collision or being pulled over.”
Uber is expected to begin selling the Uber Unleashed and Uber Zero training classes at retail stores later this month.
Uber did not immediately respond to Ars’ request for comment on whether it plans to roll out these new training programs in other cities.
Ars will continue to follow the Uber-driving world as it develops more information about these new classes.
